Format: DVD-ROM
Robert Greenberg and I have become good friends (although we've never met). I've watched his Fundamentals of Music, Shostakovich, and Beethoven Symphonies, String Quartets, and Piano Sonatas DVDs, and I've learned so much painlessly and often with a smile on my face. I found his lectures on the "Hammerklavier" and "Grosse Fugue" especially helpful. He was able to lift the fog off these difficult pieces for me. And in each Beethoven course, he repeatedly stressed and illustrated how much "mileage" Beethoven was able to get out of a simple, often banal, motivic ideas. Once your grasp the significance of this, Beethoven (at least for me) takes on a whole new meaning.

Now I'm watching his "Bach and High Baroque" series. Wow! I've recently had a late life ephiphany and (re)discovered Bach, but as I listened to more and more music, I soon realized that I was missing so much. Greenberg's lectures fits the bill perfectly. His lecture on the "Fugue" alone is worth the price of the set (as well as his lectures on "Baroque Glossary" (Baroque musical style and performance practices)). My listening to the "Well-Tempered Clavier" (Richter, of course.Bach: Well-Tempered Clavier) is becoming more disciplined and enjoyable after hearing that one lecture. I really looking forward to his examination of the "Matthew-Passion" (unfortuantely he doesn't lecture on the B-Minor Mass, but there is only so much he can cover in one course - maybe next time).

If you've never sampled a Greenberg "Teaching Company" course, don't think for a moment that these are lightweight presentations. I would equate them to summer school BA Music-level classes.
